Product details

Living somewhere with little to no light pollution means I do see the sky lit up on cloudless nights, and now take a keener interest in astronomy. Orion is clearly visible in the winter months, and Bellatrix is the third brightest star in the constellation after Rigel and Betelgeuse.

This shawl was specifically designed to use two different skeins of sock/fingering yarn - you will not need a full skein of the main colour. It could be made using just one colour. The sample used 88 grammes (385 yards/352 m) of Artesano Definition Sock yarn (black) and a full skein (437 yds/400 m) of Violet Green Solemate (blue/black variegated).

The pattern is charted using StitchMastery and includes full written instructions.

This is a one-size shawl, although the last two rows of the edging lace pattern can be worked up to 6 times in total to make the most of any overweight CC skeins.

Stitches used: ssk, p2tog, yo, kfb, m1p, 2, 3 and 4 stitch simple cables
